Avid reader and art student Steph is participating in a monthly blog challenge to Live Like Fiction, and this was the task for October. When Grayson, former co-captain of her university rugby team, walks into her class, she knows it’s meant to be – she has to go out with this guy. Even if she’s never been attracted to big, hunky, athletic types. With Grayson’s “player” reputation off the field, Steph thinks he’ll be good for one date that’ll be worth blogging about, and that’s it.

But you know how it goes: Soon, it becomes more than just one date – and Steph and Grayson are caught up in “living like fiction.” How long can they keep playing their roles before reality steps in? Check it out in Goodreads here.

Learning To Fall is the third book in Mina Esguerra’s Spoltlight series, but can be read as a stand alone, like how I did! It follows the story of Steph, a book blogger (aaah, so so close to home!) who is participating in a monthly book challenge. For the month October, the challenge was to  “Go out with a stereotypical romance novel hero WHO ISN’T YOUR TYPE.” And since she is sooo NOT into athletic and hunky men, she knew she would be dating Greyson Price the very first moment she laid her eyes on him.

Greyson Price, however, is not your typical kind of jock. Being the co-captain of the rugby team, you would expect him to be all air and confidence, with girls all swooning over him. Greyson, though, like I said, is not your typical sporty guy. He is very reserved, you almost know nothing against him. He likes taking control of things and I would go on to say that he’s almost very perfectionist. I really like this portrayal of him, but I guess at some point in the book, it kind of back fired for me. I was at that point where I can’t see and feel things through him anymore. He’s such a very private and controlled character that I definitely had to make an effort to get into his head.

This, however, did not lessen the beauty of this book. I loved every single scene where Steph was contemplating about the stuff she’ll do for blog. The little excerpts from her posts are really cute and entertaining. Again, so very close to home. ❤

If you are a book blogger, then I definitely definitely recommend this. It was such a cute little book, and you will just breeze through it. Don’t get fooled by the length, though, because it contains really cute and romantic scenes that will just leave you smiling and swooning. 🙂
